Champagne storage

The conservation of champagne is essential for the wine to retain its flavor, aroma and freshness. To best preserve the champagne, it is recommended to store it in a dark and cool place, away from any direct source of light or temperature variations. Also, it should be kept on its side in order to maintain even pressure in the bottle. The ideal temperature for storing champagne is between 10 and 12 degrees Celsius, although this may vary depending on the type of wine; in general, white and rosé champagnes require cooler temperatures than vintage varieties.

In addition, you should also store champagne away from strong odors, as these can seep into the wine itself. This means avoiding, where possible, storing champagne next to foods such as onions or garlic. Also, it is important to ensure that the cork remains moist so that no air enters the bottle and disturbs the integrity of the sparkling wine. For best results, avoid moving or shaking bottles containing champagne, as this may upset the delicate balance of carbon dioxide bubbles.

Proper storage of champagne extends its shelf life and taste; however, once opened, it should be consumed within 2-3 days for best quality. Unopened bottles can typically last up to 3 years when stored in ideal conditions, but this varies depending on the type of champagne being stored. If a bottle has been exposed to severe temperature swings, it is best to consume it quickly before it suffers further damage.
